Owned by Michael Andretti, part of the legendary Andretti motorsport family, the American squad have gained sponsorship from insurance company Amlin this season. The Andretti squad will therefore run with the electric blue livery that was used by the Amlin Aguri team last season. After issues with their new powertrain in pre-season testing, the team has decided to switch back to the season 1 powertrain for the second season of competition.
The team has won numerous championships in various categories, including four IndyCar crowns and three Indianapolis 500 wins. They were unable to win a race in the first Formula E season, with three different drivers taking podiums and Jean-Eric Vergne putting his car in pole position three times.
After sampling eight different drivers last season, the team will hope for more stability from their chosen season 2 pairing of Simona de Silvestro, who raced in the London season finale, and championship rookie Robin Frijns.
